    Sore fingers after weight lifting

    This can be due to a few conditions, I would go to an orthopedic specialist and have it evaluated. It could be as simple as a sprain or a tenosynovitis and a cortisone injection could relieve the discomfort.

    Meniscus Repair Surgery

    So sorry to hear that you need to have the meniscus repaired. My physician uses bone marrow aspirate concentrate injections when he repairs them, it allows for healing and pain relief. We aspirate your bone marrow from the iliac crest and inject into the area with the repair. It is amazing how...

    Meniscus Repair Surgery

    If you have no pain there is no reason to fix the meniscus. I work in an orthopedic office, our physician tells his patients that meniscal repair will accelerate the development of arthritis. The irrigation used in arthroscopic repair is very acidic and washes away the synovial fluid in the...

    Tennis Elbow anyone??

    I work in an orthopedic office and we see a fair amount of tennis and golfer's elbow. Usually it is the result of overuse or lifting too heavy. Give it time to heal,it usually takes anywhere from 6-12 months. Topical anti inflammatory creams can help, as well as a brace. You can order the tennis...

    Best Smoothie Maker

    I had a vitamix but honestly did not like it. If I didn't cut everything up it did not blend well, and forget trying to blend "sticky" stuff like figs. I now have a Ninja and love it, you can put anything in it and it works in seconds. Bonus: it is cheaper than the vitamix.

    Sorry to hear, I hope you heal quickly. Please don't rush back into working out, take time to heal. I work in an orthopedic office and we have people who rush back and re-injure themselves.
